Looks to be a modern brick-built parapet to the bridge and no sign of any projecting brackets. Have to assume this one has been destroyed.

There is a bridge close to the railway station, but my GPS pointed to a location further west where there is not one now. This was disappointing as I have yet to see a projecting bracket.
